Newport Pagnell’s excited players have been told to go out and leave nothing on the pitch tomorrow despite getting the hardest Vase draw possible.

The United Counties side know they are far from favourites when they travel to South Shields in the Quarter Finals on Saturday.

Manager Darren Lynch accepts not too many will give his side hope going up to the bookies’ favourites

“We are under dogs yes but we have been a few times already,” the Swans boss said. “In a way I suppose you could say the pressure is off of us. We aren’t the ones everyone seems to be saying will win the competition.

“It’s the FA Cup mentality to an extend. Without a doubt about it they are the favourites to beat us but for us it’s about making sure we give it every single thing we have got.”

It’s sure to be another big north east crowd for a competition the area has very much fallen in love with.

“They love the Vase up there,” Lynch said. “But we’re enjoying the ride and for us to get to this stage is incredible.

“But the boys don’t want it to end. I knew we would draw them when the balls came out! We’ve got to give it everything.”
